The great Bob Marley died in 1981, but before he did, the members of his band made him a promise to carry on not only his music, but also his message of peace and unity.

And the Original Wailers made good on that promise in Albany’s Riverfront Park on Thursday, August 13 at the final Alive @ 5 concert of the 2009 summer season.
